Relentless Rockies losing has Coors Field frustrated — but still crowded

•, Benjamin Hochman

It was a lazy, hazy Monday night at Coors Field, and between innings fans were quietly chatting and sipping sodas when a man suddenly stood from his seat and shouted, "FIRE O'DOWD!"

The man in the purple shirt, seated near the Rockies dugout, continued in a half-minute diatribe expressing his desire for the ouster of general manager Dan O'Dowd, the architect of the disaster unfolding in front of him. Later, on the Coors concourse, Brian Lenherr was spotted in a makeshift T-shirt, purple of course, with "Fire Dan O'Dowd" written on the back. On the front: "Season of a 'century' - 100 losses! Go Rockies!"

"It's definitely a nightmare," Lenherr said.

The Rockies stink but somewhat remarkably continue to draw well,

ranking 13th overall in baseball attendance despite having fallen 21 games under .500.
